Show Notes

Campus visits are hard! Forewarned is forearmed, though, and Karen and Kel continue in the “job market advice” vein and talk about managing the campus visit, mostly focused on zoom challenges, but with insights for in-person visits as well. We cover the basic schedule, the challenges of meeting Deans, department heads and faculty, coping with Zoom settings and overwhelm, and end on the many bewilderments of the job talk. We disagree on several matters, including on how to best balance “they want to hear about you”/”they don’t want to hear too much about you.”

Episode 13 – Loss and Grief in a Pandemic

COVID19 has brought countless losses to academic communities – not just sickness and death, but also the loss of our jobs, our work norms and routines, our campus traditions, our classroom practices, our research outlets, our face to face connections, our avenues to rest and relaxation…. and that’s not counting the loss of feelings of safety and security that many (although certainly not all!) of us previously took for granted. Building on the work of grief specialist David Kessler, Karen and Kel talk about how to recognize and process all the forms of loss and grief you might be experiencing and find ways to come back to center when grief feels overwhelming. ...
